A resident at the apartment complex in Canada where four people were killed in a shooting on Friday says that he saw the incident unfold.
    
Justin Mclean said there had been fights at the complex, but never like this.
    
"I just woke up and heard gunshots and I looked outside my window. There was basically three dead people laying there. It wasn't a pretty sight," Mclean told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

Canadian police said Friday that two of the four killed in the incident in the eastern city of Fredericton, New Brunswick are police officers.
